<p><b>Abstract</b>—This correspondence introduces the <it>weighted-Parzen-window</it> classifier. The proposed technique uses a clustering procedure to find a set of reference vectors and weights which are used to approximate the <it>Parzen-window</it> (<it>kernel-estimator</it>) classifier. The weighted-Parzen-window classifier requires less computation and storage than the full Parzen-window classifier. Experimental results showed that significant savings could be achieved with only minimal, if any, error rate degradation for synthetic and real data sets.</p>
Nonparametric classifiers, Parzen-windows, kernel estimator, clustering, training samples, discriminant analysis, Bayes error, leave-one-out, holdout.
